An apartment tower planned for a site near the old Cabrini-Green is ready to grow legs. Initially unveiled early last year, the plan from developer Fifield Companies will deliver 310 apartment units to 347 W Chestnut Street according to a newly issued construction permit. The 28 story Pappageorge Haymes-designed tower will also include about 6,000 square feet of ground floor retail. Similar to many of the other apartment towers springing up throughout the greater downtown area, this project will include a plethora of amenities like an outdoor pool and spa, outdoor fire pit, outdoor grill kitchens, a gym and screening room.
Update: We've been informed that the project has dropped the "Avant" name and will be officially called NEXT at NoCA (NoCa, an abbreviation for North of Chicago Avenue...)
